Today my blog received its 10,000 hit for the month and 50,000 hits since it stated 10 months ago. I wanted to personally thank everyone for reading and for providing comments. While these numbers might not be astronomical for the blog world, it means a lot to me to be able to help runners outside of my practice simply by reading this blog. I’d like to think that with the way digital media is advancing, things are just getting started for me in the world of blogging and treating people online.
Below is a comments box and I welcome questions, thoughts, or topics you would like me to discuss. If your suffering from any running injury -plantar fasciitis, IT band syndrome, piriformis syndrome, hamstring strain, shin splints, knee pain, condromalacia, or neuroma to name few, feel free to ask. I do my best to respond to tweets regarding running injuries and I would like to provide more detail to my readers here.

Hi Dr. Nick,
Could you please make a blog about your current thoughts about running with sesamoid fractures and sesamoiditis? I have a sesamoid fracture, which I don’t have any symptoms from, except when I run on concrete. I have begun walking in minimalist shoes for the past few weeks, to strengthen my foot, but I am wondering how I can transition to running outside?
Right now I am able to play basketball, do high intensity spin classes, do high-intensity plyometric group exercise classes, and run on the treadmill, with no pain.
Thanks for your help!
